The love for designing and manufacturing special overcoats led to the name Patatuka,which in Greek means thick and warm overcoat. The love, though , for clothing is not limited to this specific type of clothing, which means that our collections are for all weathers and are neither restricted by season nor the type of clothing !
Her interaction with clothes starts in her childhood, when the love for textiles leads her to make clothes for her favourite toys,while as a student , she either designs clothes in her textbooks, or photographs whatever impresses her with her pocket camera! Her studies begin with photography at the Graphic Arts and Art Studies department of the university of western Attica, and this is when she , and her mother ,buy her first sewing machine, and starts making her first clothes and accessories. After her graduation, she takes courses in fashion design and later in art jewellery. Dealing with the design and manufacture of clothes, as well as wedding dresses on her own, leads to the creation of her own fashion brand in 2020 !
